Any Of You Used Aquapon Epoxy From Pittsburgh ?


I have an epoxy parking garage floor to do next week .The rep at Pittsburgh is a friend is willing to give me a great deal on it. Im a little skittish because Ive never used it.I normally use armor seal from SW but would be saving about 40% with Ppg .

Thoughts ?

I haven't but I know Tom. Where's the parking deck at? We done one many years ago in B'ham down next door to the B'ham news. It was coated with TAMM'S coat back then.

Need to also mention, make sure that the surface is prepped properly. If not it will fail. I would say at least to a CSP 2-3. If you need any assistance just let me know. I do consulting and inspection work.

Its actually in South Alabama .Is Toms last name Baird ?

I actually looked at your site a few days back and about emailed you because your not far from me and seem to be very knowledgeable .

Ive done several small projects with epoxy but this will be my biggest yet .Its new concrete and Im trying to decide between a couple dual disc grinders or shot blast .Also whats the best product in your opinion on small holes to patch ?

I appreciate it !

No, it's Tom Higginbotham. He is the b'ham area PPG/Ameron salesman. Unfortunately I will be out of town until Monday of next week. Just arrived from a two week consulting job in New Zealand last night and now headed back to the B'ham airport to fly to LA to instruct a class. Give me a call sometime and I would be glad to help out. I would like to build a customer base here in my state but so far I'm wanted from the northeast to the west coast to far away lands. Been to Australia twice for work already. I've been in the industrial coatings for over 25 years and deal with a lot of new technology coatings. Have a good day man and feel free to give me a call anytime.

Busy yes. Been out for over 250 days this year on jobs. A lot of short jobs so I'm always flying somewhere. As far as the rain like we had today. Today would have been a stay in bed late day I'm afraid. You have to watch such coatings that says that they will bind to damp concrete. That word is bond. How good? Not very!

I was just curious as to how long after the rain do you think it would be suitable to start.I plan on doing a moisture test but for planning sake. Im not starting prep until Wed but was just curious for future reference .

Which moisture test are you looking at doing? If it's the plastic sheet then your really wasting your time. It will only tell you yes or no if your concrete contains moisture and all concrete has some amount. We do either the calcium chloride test which is a 60 hour test and will tell you how much moisture vapor is coming out and you need to be under 3 pound per 1,000 sq ft. And then you have the RH% test by in situ probes. A little newer test and you would have to see how much RH% is too much from your material supplier. Has the concrete been coated before? And if not, is there a sealer? What method of surface prep are you intending on doing?
